House Mouse Friendship & CASology "White"


The challenge for #HMFMC128 is "friendship." I thought this sweet little image was a perfect example of being a good friend :) I colored with Copics, adding glossy accents to the flower and creating clouds with Ranger tumbled glass ink. The sentiment is from SNSS and the dsp is from Echo Park. The corner was done with my Quickutz and embossed with the SU! square lattice ef. Ribbon was from my stash, and the sentiment was die cut with a SB ribbon tag.

Here is the cue card for this week's CASology challenge week #11.

This card might just be the quickest Christmas card I've ever made! I embossed the image with a Crafters-too "sleigh" folder, and embossed the sentiment with Holly Red ep and a retired SU! stamp. I rounded the corners and this card was done!
The first card I made for this challenge was all-white, but it didn't turn out too CAS, which is why I made a 2nd one. Here's that first card I made.......

It isn't CAS, but I love how easy it was to make with an embossing folder, a die cut flourish, a few pearls, some punched branches and a store-bought flower.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is fabulous!

Carol

Love them all, but the Santa and sleigh one made me smile... I thought - ooh they're caught in a snow storm without Rudolph! {grin} (though maybe he's just off the card to the right)...

These are lovely cards Carol but I especially like the white on white ones and so do the ladies at CASology because you've just got an honorable mention! Love the idea of the added red nose for Rudolph you mentioned on the site.
